Conquering Job Site Challenges

How does operator comfort impact job site performance?

Working on a job site can be stressful. If an operator is uncomfortable, the chances are much greater that he’ll develop a headache, backache or a sore, stiff neck. If an operator feels physically sore, he will tire more quickly and not be nearly as productive in his work. Also, if the operator feels tired or is in physical discomfort, he may tend to rush his work to finish more quickly, leading to a more unsafe working environment. More job site accidents occur when operators are tired or feeling physically uncomfortable, bothered by aches and pains that may distract him. The same goes if he is too cold or too hot. He is more likely to be less productive or to overlook safety procedures because he is in a hurry to finish, instead of working in a calm, controlled manner.
